The most common question I get is “what’s your style?”. I let myself think before I answer. What do you understand by the question “what’s your style”. Why do I wear this kind of silhouette or why do I prefer this print to that one? Why do I wear creepers instead of sneakers sometimes or why do I prefer wearing wigs? Every time I get this kind of question I start questioning myself even more – what do they want to hear? Are they excited to hear about new wave of any subculture or do they think they do not know something about the fashion world?
Let’s start with the easiest part. What do you understand under the word “style”. There are so many styles in the world, but your style is yours. Every human being has their own style. Style – is what do you wear and how do you combine elements of clothes. Sometimes subcultures (like punk subculture in 80’s or hippie in 70’s) made a style trend very massive – big groups of people started wearing mutual clothes – but everyone was still wearing it in their own way. The sense of style sometimes is not that good…some people prefer to copy mass market ideas and pick clothes by looking at it in a look book. You don’t have to pick, you can choose anything what’s ready personally for you. People with their own sense of fashion and personal style look charming. I traveled the world and found so many unique characters. Your style does not have to be the brightest – sometimes people have a very basic style, but it looks so pure and completed. It would be so perfect if every human being had their own style in my city – people would look really unique and inspirational. Expressing your personality is the thing you have to do for life, you are a human being – you are smart and you can prove you are not like everyone else.
That’s why I really love Couture fashion weeks. Every dress is very unique and nothing repeats itself. I am afraid to see every fashion week’s updates. Fashion becomes more and more mass market. Even famous fashion houses use less details and try to make dresses more simple. Cannot wait to see the new fashion week, which starts tomorrow.
When people ask me “what’s your style” I tell them “it’s me”.
